Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Children perceive persuasion as a weakness

Q: My 12-year-old grandson has become obsessed with things he wants, including a cellphone (the most expensive, mind you), an iPad and expensive designer jeans. He begs, throws tantrums, pouts, refuses to speak to his parents and the like. When told not to say another word, he leaves them notes, draws pictures or comes to us or the other grandparents.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Celebrate Thanksgiving all year long

The story of the 10 lepers is sad from the standpoint of the nine healed men who failed to express gratitude to Jesus (Luke 17:11–19). We're not told why they didn't return; the implication is that it was because of neglect. But from the standpoint of the one that remembered, it is a prime example of the value of expressed thankfulness.

Every Labor Day, nearly 1,000 people journey to the Salzburger homestead in Effingham County, Ga., for the anniversary of the arrival of the Germans in Georgia nearly 280 years ago.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Trust child's physician with physical well-being

Q: My 8-year-old son was born prematurely and weighed only 3 pounds. He is still too thin in my opinion, although his doctor hasn't been worried about it. I have been trying to get him to gain weight his whole life.

Jim Healy: What did GOP learn?

While I can't imagine what it was like for folks living in Ohio or Virginia and being overwhelmed with political ads wherever you were, I'm not going to miss the ads from Lee Anderson and John Barrow that ran like machine-gun fire on television during the past month.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Stepparents have authority, deserve respect

Q: What is the role of a stepparent in parenting teenage stepchildren? My 19-year-old stepson moved in with us several months ago and is disrupting our marriage. He does what he wants, when he wants, and there are no consequences. How does one deal with a child that age when he refuses to follow the rules of the house?

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - A month of gratitude for family and friends

It's that time of year when we purposefully stop to count our blessings, make mental lists of people and possessions for which we're thankful, and contemplate the order of our priorities. The month of November brings gratitude to the forefront of our minds, even though the gratitude attitude should be present year-round.

Kathy Bradley - By the waters of Babylon

Our ninth-grade literature textbook included the post-apocalyptic short story "By the Waters of Babylon" by Stephen Vincent Benet. The story follows a young boy, the son of a priest in a primitive society, as he journeys far beyond the borders his people have long honored. His long and dangerous quest takes him to the city of the gods, where he stumbles across the ruins of the great towers that once filled the city. Two of the rocks have words written on them, words he doesn't understand: UBTREAS and ASHING.
